‘He came into GAWS with his brother after being found living under a house. He had a very deformed eye which required surgery to remove but he’s doing really well,’ Mrs Anderson told the Geelong Advertiser.

‘I’ve researched it to see if it’s a genetic fault but it’s so rare there’s not much written about them.’

Frankie has become close friends with Mrs Anderson’s young son Arthur.

‘They’re great together,’ she said.
